I priced these many years ago, and they were something ridiculous like
$550. Now, consider the horsepower increase they're likely to give you
for the money. 10hp? 20? For that same $550, you could buy a Schrick cam
or get some nice head work done (I'd go for the latter). Easier and
cheaper solution is to use a 4kQ manifold system. This is good for
10-15hp and can be junkyard accessed for probably $50. You'll have to
make a pipe to join the downpipe and the converter, but it sure won't
cost $550.
